7 DAY MAKEOVER

Imagine transforming your entire town centre in 7 days... and that includes all the planning!

Westport, New Zealand, the community work together

Got a space that needs revitalising?

In this video, see why the old approach fails and causes the community to unplug

The traditional approach starts by creating a master plan, and then consulting the community.

 

But this often gets bogged down in endless debate, or the report ends up on a shelf gathering dust, or if anything does happen, it can take years, and the result is often disappointing.

 

Our approach avoids all these pitfalls.

What we deliver

Launch

  KICK START YOUR REVITALISATION  

We help the community to totally transform the look and feel of their town centre or public space in just 7 days.

Agile Placemaking

  GIVES EXPERIENCE OF AGILE PLANNING  

Council and the community experience, first hand, a new way of working together.

Change the conversations

  CHANGES THE TOWN STORY  

Often communities are blaming Council, or some other factor (such as lack of parking) for the state of their town centre. The makeover shifts this story significantly, as people learn to take civic responsibility.

Build community wellbeing

  BUILDS COMMUNITY WELL-BEING

The 7 Day Makeover creates a stronger sense of community and builds resilience. It also identifies and empowers a new group of community leaders.
